  • Virginia Military Institute - New Programs Explore Concepts in Nuclear Energy
    concentration in nuclear energy The Department of Mechanical Engineering led the way graduating its first majors with the concentration at the end of the 2009 10 academic year The Department of Physics and Astronomy has begun offering coursework toward its nuclear energy concentration this semester with its first graduates mostly likely in the Class of 2015 Mechanical engineering majors seeking the concentration must complete the mechanical engineering curriculum and select two additional upper level classes from the following three ME 431 Power Plant Design PY 344 Nuclear Physics and PY453 Nuclear Reactor Engineering Three other courses ME 311 Thermodynamics I ME 313 Thermodynamics II and ME 314 Fluid Dynamics or CE 309 Fluid Mechanics are also required but are part of the ME major curriculum Five courses are required for physics majors seeking that department s nuclear energy concentration ME 311 Thermodynamics I ME 314 Fluid Mechanics ME 336 Heat and Mass Transfer PY 344 Nuclear Physics and either PY 453 Nuclear Reactor Engineering or ME 431 Power Plant Design All physics majors take a two semester Modern Physics sequence said Col John Thompson professor and head of the physics department That sequence establishes the basic principles on which nuclear engineering is founded Engineers and physicists said Thompson both acquire a good technical background The courses are different but the basic skill sets are pretty similar he said Capt Bob McMasters professor of mechanical engineering who teaches the Power Plant Design course notes that though career paths of mechanical engineers and physicists with the nuclear energy concentration are similar physicists might be more likely to be employed in reactor design and mechanical engineers by operational plants In adding the concentration both departments seem to be riding a trend I think part of it is because of the nuclear renaissance the renewed interest in nuclear power in our country said McMasters Nuclear energy is not green but it is carbon free you don t generate CO2 greenhouse gases said Thompson The big thing about nuclear coal and petroleum is the energy density You ve got 7 billion people on the face of the planet and they d all like to live like Americans That requires a great deal of energy You can t supply that energy through renewables The fuel value of a single uranium pellet less than an inch long is equivalent to that of a ton of coal said McMasters There s just a lot of energy waiting to be released And said Thompson aside from the issue of growth there s opportunity for employment because of the graying of the staff Since it has been looked upon as a dying industry since the Three Mile Island accident in 1979 there have been fewer and fewer new people going into it said McMasters Very few of the plants have closed and the people who work there are retiring They re desperately looking for ways to fill that coming void Demand is also felt in both VMI departments from cadets
